Doctor :   Thank you for your question. It is possible that you are having an allergic reaction to a substance you may have been ex posed to. The swelling of your tongue leads us to believe that this is a severe allergic reaction which may cause your airways to swell leading to difficulty breathing. We strongly recommend that you seek medical attention immediately to determine if you are suffering form an allergic reaction. You may need to be admitted to the hospital to be treated with antiinflammatory medication to reduce the swelling you are experiencing. Please seek medical attention.
